Spring Hair Tips

Air isn’t the only thing that’s dry in the winter. Not only does your skin suffer, but your hair does as well. When it’s time for spring to arrive, your hair is probably lacking in luster and shine. Not to worry, here are some tips to getting your hair looking and feeling healthy just in time for spring.

Get rid of those ends

The best way to start off on the right track for erasing the damage winter has caused your hair is to chop off those dead ends. There’s no need for a major chop. A small trimming of your ends will do the trick.

Change up your shampoo and conditioner

We tend to go for a shampoo and conditioner with extra moisture in the winter. These products are great, but when you combine them with the humid, spring air, you might end up with more moisture than you bargained for. This can result in a frizzy mess. Instead, choose a shampoo for normal hair such as Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo or MoroccanOil’s Extra Volume Shampoo with their complimenting conditioner to keep that extra moisture. They will leave your hair shiny and smooth.

Why not lighten up?

Naturally, things tend to start getting sunnier as the warmer weather starts to roll around. So, why not have your hair looking sunnier as well? Come in and talk to a stylist about balayage highlights. Balayage is a perfect way to give you a sun-kissed glow by applying highlights in a random pattern as opposed to the strategically placed foil highlights.

Avoid frizz

There’s no doubt that humid air results in crazy hair. Anti-frizz serums are great to help keep your hair smooth and frizz-free. MorroccanOil’s Anti-frizz serum is perfect for the intense humidity. Do you have extra curly hair? Aveda’s Curl Controller helps fight off frizz while keeping your curly hydrated and smooth.

Don’t avoid the heat

Believe it or not, hot tools are a great way to help keep your hair smooth and in place. Instead of air drying and diffusing your hair, try blow drying it straight. Flatirons are also a wonderful way to smooth out anything and even add waves to your hair. Avoiding heat tools will lead to frizzier looking hair throughout the day.

Spray it away

If you’ve never dabbled with anti-humidity sprays, then you’re missing out. They’re a wonderful way to keep the frizz far away from your locks. Spray it lightly before styling and keep it in your bag to use throughout the day. Remember to not overdo it because these types of products will leave a residue.

Rainy days are inevitable

Whether you’re happy about it or not, there will always be at least one rainy day in the springtime. April showers bring May flowers, right? Prepare yourself by thinking of a go-to style. Braids, top knots, and chignons are just a few examples of the many ways you can style your locks when the weather isn’t cooperating.

It’s time to accessorize

Our hair is usually stuck underneath a hat most of the winter. Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s time to switch from hats to accessories. Have a little fun and explore the endless types of fun pins and wraps you could add to your look.
